It helps to be nice.
My teacher, at the end of class, always told us, “See you next week, be nice to someone!” I think I kind of adopted it as another motto. Shu told me that she would not have been friends with me had I not been nice, and I always found that really heartwarming. I try my best to treat others as they would treat me, but sometimes people end up calling me “fake” for that. I’m sure if I were meaner, I’d just be called a myriad of other things, anyway (as if we aren’t already).
Ultimately, what other hurtful things people say shouldn’t matter. We make videos because we both love games and we want to have fun. We want to share that enjoyment with others. It’s really as simple as that. ^^
I’m really glad I met the people I did. Although we’re probably going to be faced with even more problems in the future, it doesn’t hurt to hold your head high and march on in life regardless. We’re not perfect, of course, but a little kindness goes a long way.
